A Home for the Holidays

Last year’s annual fundraising event honored:

Community Partner — U.S. Bank

Individual — Eileen Padberg

Event Chairs: Meg O’Toole, Amber Omran and Donna Ketter


2016 was our 17th annual A Home for the Holidays event. What began as a small gathering of people dedicated to advance our vision grew into the anticipated social event of the year for WISEPlace attracting corporate and individual sponsors alike. A Home for the Holidays is an evening composed of entertainment, dinner and a live auction. Guests have the opportunity to hear how their contributions make a difference by listening to the testimony of a WISEPlace graduate. The proceeds raised at the event benefit the residents’ journey to self-sufficiency. The event took place at The Vintage Rose  in Orange.

The evening included:

–Hosted Hors d’oeuvres

–Hosted bar

–Live and Silent auctions

–Opportunity drawing


–Pledge from the Heart

–Address from a WISEPlace graduate
